Magnolia Solar Corporation, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Magnolia Solar, Inc., is commercializing its nanotechnology-based, high-efficiency, thin-film technology that can be deposited on a variety of substrates, including glass and flexible structures. This technology has the ability to capture a larger part of the solar spectrum to produce high-efficiency solar cells, and incorporates a unique nanostructure-based antireflection coating technology to further increase the solar cell's performance, thereby reducing the cost per watt.
Magnolia Solar is focused on becoming a highly competitive, low cost provider of thin-film photovoltaic modules for terrestrial applications for defense and commercial markets. For commercial applications, Magnolia's primary goal is to introduce modules that offer significant cost savings per watt over traditional silicon-based solar cells. Its technology solution addresses both electrical grid and distributed power requirements such as residential electrical power, lighting, heating, and traffic control.
